315 Restaurant & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Five stars plus! Not only is the food presentation beautiful but the taste is incredible. We picked this restaurant due to online recommendation and ate there 2 out of 3 nights while vacationing in Santa Fe; the third night we went by for dessert & after dinner drinks. Owner/chef Louis was "out and about" and was charming, gracious, and knowledgeable about any topic. Our server, Kim, was outstanding, never rushing us but always nearby if we needed her.
Looking for great food, fun place with friends, AND unbelievable value? 315Bistro is your place for all the above. Tuesday is half bottle wine night. Find a great wine that you would never think to order and get it for half price Tuesday night. Love oysters. Look no further. $1.50 oysters from 5-7pm. I love this place.
Somewhat expensive but a comfy small bar with great happy hour--oysters. You can stay at bar for dinner if you wish. Happy hour and dinner $100 each. Good parking across street which is a plus in SFe. Bartenders efficient and friendly. Food and wine very good. I'll go back.
This is a great little restaurant! They dining room is very small but nice ambience and fantastic food. There is a large wine bar that serves small plates so we will definitely be trying that out soon. My husband had cassoulet which was outstanding, and I had chicken cordon bleu also great. The showstopper was the chocolate pot de creme. The chocolate was first quality and it's an amazing dessert--would go back just for that. We had made reservations which are probably a must as the dining room is quite small.
Such a enjoyable experience! We had a quiet table in a cozy nook that felt very private. We were lucky to be there on one of the half-priced wine nights, and ordered two excellent half bottles, tailored to our various courses. Our starter was a delicious foie gras pate, followed by a crispy calamari salad and a plate of large, juicy mussels in a tasty white wine sauce. The flourless chocolate cake waa the perfect ending.
Having lived in France, will return to better sample the full French-cuisine menu as Restaurant Week selection was only adequate... but I do lament Santa Fe's becoming so uncomfortably virtual chic, where a legitimate French neighborhood bistro—with creative, fresh, affordable fare and daily specials on a sidewalk chalkboard—could thrive. We are now "hotel & spa, restaurant & wine bar" to zap the affluent, instead of providing a local eatery more true in character to fast-disappearing Santa Fe, inviting to residents and visitors alike.
The restaurant was good but we waited a long time to order a drink. It was the first night of restaurant week in Santa Fe but I would have expected them to be adequately staffed.
They did not have the wine we wanted. It is super annoying when a restaurant has a wine on their list that they do not have once you have ordered.
Vacationing with friends, found restaurant on-line via ratings, visiting Santa Fe on vacation, rented VRBO (fabulous experience BTW!), not in season for Santa Fe...but in-season for us! Found 315 cozy, friendly, superb service, and the food absolutely perfect (clean plate club for a bunch of foodies). We ordered Sea Bass, Duck, Bouillabaisse, and Veal Schnitzel. This is worth a return visit...
This is a great place for a pair or smaller groups. Loved the sea bass and was impressed with the variety of offerings on the menu and special board. I appreciated the gluten free labeling and the waiter's prompt willingness to check on the gf status of one of the specials. I will return.
The food here is good, sometimes very good. The portions are really inconsistent. A veal schnitzel dish was piled up such that it needed a bigger plate while the mussel entree was small. The soup appetizer was quite generous. The food needs a little more attention to plating and presentation. It was a bit haphazrd (fries piled on top of the mussels seemed careless). The servers are excellent and the timing very good. The desserts also quite tasty and a very normal portion size. Some of the dishes (chocolate torte, schnitzel, squash soup) were excellent in flavor and worth going back for. Others (salmon entree, mussels) were simply good but unremarkable. We'd go back but with so many other options in Santa Fe, this won't be at the very top of the list for awhile.
After being a regular for the past 10 years, I was frankly disappointed. The Prix Fixe price was too high for the offering. Appetizers completely under value - two oysters and two shrimp and small unexciting salads. The steak frites was excellent as always - in fact better than usual, a very tender piece of steak. The grouper was tasty, but a very small portion padded with potatoes. The veal schnitzel, very small...presentation uninspired...mashed potatoes boring.
Desserts very good. BUt when you add it all up, it was overpriced.
Also one of my dishes (the schnitzel coating, or maybe added to the honey on the cheese plate??) were pine nuts. I suffer from Pine Nut Syndrome (Google it!) that is manifest by an intense metallogeusia (metallic taste) that lasts more than two weeks after eating pine nuts. Had I known pine nuts were included somewhere I would have avoided them.
My wife andI usually sit at the bar to better take advantage of bartenders that know their business and the terrific bar menu. The latter is one of the best dining bargains in Santa Fe.
We had a small family get-together the other night and opted to sit in one of the regular dining rooms. 315 did not disappoint. Excellent bistro fare, outstanding wine list and attentive, but not overbearing servers. The owner/executive chef, Louis Moscow, was also there to offer great suggestions of of the wine list.
One of our very favorite restaurants in Santa Fe.
This is a beautiful little restaurant and the service was fabulous. The food, however, was not the upscale quality I expected. The sea bass should have been grilled or prepared in a way that added to the wonderful texture and taste of this fish. The shrimp and scallops were not quite done, but that was tolerable...the rice mixture they were served on was too tart and didn't combine well with the seafood. For dessert...the pear tart was smothered in cloves and nutmeg, which totally obscured the delicate pears. We made the reservation on Open Table, which did not mention this was a prix fixe menu @ $65 per person. We paid a lot of money for a ho-hum meal. The setting is beautiful though and the service was awesome.
I went on Christmas Day and had an overall excellent meal. I thought the main course was rather skimpy, given what I was paying, but everything was top quality and well prepared. They have a diverse wine selection by the glass (not like some restaurants that offer 6 versions of Chardonnay!), and the dessert beverage selection is also very good.
Lovely Christmas Eve Dinner
The restaurant was packed so we sat in the bar for dinner. But the staff were incredibly helpful and made sure to honor any special requests. It was a fixed menu but lots of choices for every course. My cassoulet was delicious and the trout appetizer was great as well as the profiteroles for desserts.
Love Affair Over. We took our new to town there on Christmas Eve. We had a 6:30 reservation. When we got there, by the look on the hostess' face, we knew there was a problem. We were told they were backed up. Asked if we wanted to wait in the bar and ordered a bottle of wine. Looking forward to a big Christmas Eve dinner so we arrived hungry. After 40 minutes, I asked how much longer, and was practically yelled at by a stressed out staff member. We wanted to know so we could order maybe an appetizer, but were told that we could not, as it was a prex fixe menu. We did not want to eat in the bar (and were not told if this were an option), because the noise level was so loud that we could not converse. We were seated at 8:00, one hour and 30 minutes after our reservation. Our meal was served around 8:45--2 hours and 45 minutes after our reservation. During our meal, we had to listen to the staff in the room behind ours stress out about how they could not seat a table for because of a wet chair. There was a mob still waiting. At the end of the meal, we asked the waiter what had happened. He said the restaurant overbooked because they thought there would be cancellations due to snow (it did not snow). Confirmed by another review I read by someone who booked a 6:15 reservation at 4:30 that evening. This was Christmas eve, and overbooking on a night people were likely to linger at their tables, seems totally irresponsible and unprofessional. Our long wait, and extreme hunger by the time we got our first bite of food made the whole dinner unpleasant. We missed our opportunity to walk Canyon Road, a main point of this night out with our friends. The management made no efforts to make up for our experience (offer us a glass of wine as we waited, a discount or AN APOLOGY). I have always liked eating there, the food is good and the waitstaff great, but there are a lot of great restaurants in Santa Fe, so we won't be going back.
Yes, I know it was Christmas Eve, and yes I know the Plaza area around Santa Fe was extra crowded but I have to say that Restaurant 315 could have controlled their intake of crowds far better than they did. They seemed to be taking people just to take them. Now, of course that is my perception. At 4:30, they still took my reservation for 6:15pm and when I walked in they were packed to the rafters and people could not move and they had a waiting list on top of that. I overheard that manager say they could have turned that table 3 times )referring to another table near me). Now is that poor management (trying to cut short the stay in their planning) or is that people just enjoying themselves and over-staying the hospitality or poor service--I can't tell you, but all in all, when I left 2 hours later, the front area was still a mob scene. My server was excellent. The food was good. The cassoulet was a little on the weak side. I actually make a better one than they served. But all in all, I would return on a normal night an give them another chance.
Christmas Eve was a disaster at this restaurant. The staff was 45 minutes behind at 5:45 pm. We waited 45 minutes to be seated even tho we were contacted twice to confirm our reservation. We had an 8 pm performance to attend and had to skip dessert. When we left it was a mad house with people having no room in the waiting areas. We were there on Christmas Eve last year and had a great experience and decided to return again. The food is excellent, but this Christmas Eve was a bad experience and showed poor management through severe overbooking. This will really hurt their reputation.
Food was marginal at best
We had a reservation, walked in on time and was told "oh I am very busy.will have to shuffle some things around" and a few minutes later took us to what seemed like an add on area with zero ambiance. Seemed like they were too busy to really take proper care of us
The waiter was good enough, but the food was no where near what we expected. The fish had no taste, the cassoulet was ok but not great. The French onion soup was a mess-how hard is it for a French restaurant to make French onion soup
We won't be returning
